Post Mycenaean vs Egyptian part 2
Back when War & Conquest was first released I put together a detailed battle report explaining the rules - you can read it here viewtopic.php?f=43&t=950

I have been keen to use both armies again and as Jez at the club (Bristol Big Uns) fancied a game and is also interested in the period, it was just the excuse required. Jez hadn't tried War & Conquest before so the game was a combination of explaining the rules but also getting on with the action.

I took charge of the Egyptians and Jez had the Mycenaean's. Army size was 2500 points and we used an 8ft x 4 table. We both drew 'Pitched Battle' as battle objectives.

In the early exchanges Jez was certainly in the ascendency as my dice rolling deserted me. However when it came down to the business of combat the roles were reversed and the Mycenaean chariots failed to rout Pharaohs chariot army (much to the surprise of both of us it must be said - you can never assume the dice will behave!)

We finished early but with the Egyptians taking charge of the left flank I was looking in a fairly decent position, but the way the dice gods were behaving, anything could still have happened- and probably would have!
